During the working trip to the Dnipropetrovsk region, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy set a requirement to complete the major repair of road bridge №2 (Central Bridge) by September 14.
The Head of State reminded that the mayor of Dnipro had promised to finish the repair of that crossing in a year. However, two years have passed since then.
“We agreed with mayor Filatov that the solemn opening of the bridge would take place on September 14. Otherwise, Mr. Filatov will resign,” the President told the journalists.
He added that it’s about comfort and security of the residents of Dnipro.
In turn, mayor Borys Filatov informed that they had made a bet with the President on that.
“In 1.5 months, on the Day of the City, we will complete that (the bridge - ed.). We will launch a new trolley line. Actually, we are at the final stage,” he noted.
Borys Filatov invited the President to visit Dnipro on the Day of the City in case the promise is kept.
